Renowned for their unique surface treatment of fabrics and dyeing techniques, Stone Island have cemented themselves as one of the forerunners in the technical outerwear industry while keeping grounded in their believes and expectations in their designs to become a much loved and respected brand in the fashion industry over the years.
The release of their highly anticipated AW17 collection has been a long time coming and is now available online at Aphrodite.
Following on from the SS17’s ‘hand corrosion collection’, the ‘frosted collection’, takes on a new dimension with artisan processes to make each garment unique and unrepeatable. You will be forgiven to think this knit has been taken straight from the catwalk with a more editorial and high end fashion look, appealing to a wider audience.
The ‘frosted’ look has been achieved with hand de-colouration techniques with a corrosive paste for a fading ‘frosted’ look, to make your garment look like it’s been locked in a freezer. The architecture of the garments has been highlighted by the remaining residual dye, to give the piece an almost industrial look. The classic Stone Island compass badge still makes an appearance to the left arm, again, given the corrosive paste treatment, making this a Stone Island collectors must have garment. Contrasting back detail in a traditional argyll knit pattern mixes time-honoured with modern design.
The Stone Island cable knit is available online at Aphrodite1994.com, priced at £550.00.
